Ed Sheeran Opens Up About His Struggles With Substance Abuse

Ed Sheeran Opens Up About His Struggles With Substance Abuse

We all know that Ed Sheeran took a very long year off ahead of the release of his most recent album, Divide.

Yes, it was to work on that album, but what we all didn’t know was that it was to recover from a secret struggle with substance abuse.

During his appearance on The Jonathan Ross Show recently, Ed opened up about the struggles he faced in the industry.

“I think you need to, when you get into the industry, adjust to [fame], and I didn’t adjust because I was constantly working on tour,” he shares.

“And all the pitfalls that people read about, I just found myself slipping into all of them. Mostly, like, substance abuse. I never touched anything. I started slipping into it, and that’s why I took a year off and buggered off.”

Ed adds that it took him some time to see a problem.

“I didn’t really notice it was happening,” he said. “It just started gradually happening, and then some people took me to one side and were like, ‘Calm yourself down.’”

Ed continues, “It’s all fun to begin with. It all starts off as a party, and then you’re doing it on your own and it’s not, so that was a wake-up call and [I took] a year off.”

Hayley Kiyoko Fans Are Going Crazy Over New Single 'Feelings' - Watch The Video Here!

Hayley Kiyoko just dropped the song and video we’ve all been waiting for.

The musician debuted her new song “Feelings” along with the official music video and we kind of can’t stop and don’t want to stop watching it.

“The lyrics are so truthful to where I’m at,” Hayley shared with Buzzfeed about the track.

“I’m currently single, and I remember going into the studio and just complaining, ‘Why do I have to be so ashamed of feelings? Why is that so bad?’ The lyrics are so dead-on with how I feel. I hope people will relate and connect to it as well.”

She adds about the video, “I want people to watch the video and have it remind them of that first moment – the butterflies when you first get hooked on somebody.”

And fans are loving it, just like JJJ.

One fan says: “my friends and i are watching feelings by @HayleyKiyoko for the first time and we’re literally SCREAMING”; with another adding, “I’m literally crying over @HayleyKiyoko ‘s new single. Like sobbing. Ugly, sapphic, sobbing.”
